Selected Poems - W.H. Auden, Edward Mendelson I bought this book just for the inscription:

For Heather...
Because poetry can heal the soul.
With love,
Jason
(Dec. 2001)


I've spent many an hour wondering about Jason and Heather, whether poetry did in fact heal her soul, and why a gift given with love ended up on the discount clearance rack at Hastings.

I'm not so hot on Auden's brand of rhyming poetry. It just doesn't speak to me. Neruda, Whitman, Wordsworth -- these are the poets of my soul.
